    I would recommend a slower car (road N100 to N300 tops) for this track. Smaller cars too. I'm a little disappointed at how the game handles car 'rubbing', by bouncing you away from each other...

    As I said on the night, I have doubts about the way the game handles minor part-of-one-wheel incursions off track. It effectively ignores your froward momentum and the fact that you have three wheels on track.

    Round 6: Spa - 19 laps - 12:00 Sunny - 8/12

    WELCOME to Season 9!! Thanks to Selby Acoustics
    As always please take 2 mins to read the following so you have an understanding of what is expected on race night......If you have any questions, or want clarification on any of the rules or regulations please ask!

    ROOM OPEN : Most room captains will 'try' to have rooms open by about 7:50 AEDT. Please be on time, or let the room captain or div thread if you may be late. If all agree, the room may wait for you, Within reason. Please remember we have drivers from NZ, and later starts mean a much later night for them.
    QUALIFYING : 8:20 AEDT for 10 mins. Once 10 mins has been reached, finish the lap you are on and park up off track. THE PITS ARE CLOSED DURING QUALIFYING
    RACE START TIME : 8:30 AEDT (once qualifying has finished)

    LAG ISSUES / ROOM RESTARTS : This is up to the room host. If there is a Disconnection (or cars stuck on grid) at race start, it is sporting to try to get them back in, which may mean a new room to be set up. I always look at 1 or 2 starts if required due to DSC, but as it gets later everyone needs to be aware of getting things going. Please be as reasonable as you can with this....
    SIGHT ISSUES: Ensure that you can see everyone on track. After qualifying, exit to lobby and spend 30 seconds in spectate mode, scroll through the list of drivers on track and make sure that you can see their car. If you can't see somebody (and they are confirmed as being on track), exit the lobby, re-join, and check again. It can also be done pre-qualifying to save time if there is no chance of latecomers.

    FALSE START CHECK : Please note that the start type is Grid Start with False Start Check
    Please practice this so you know what to expect. Simply, you hold the brakes on until the lights go from all lit, to none lit

    TURN 1 LAP 1 : This has the potential to ruin someones night if we don't use our heads! Should be everyone's goal to get through the first phase with ZERO contact. Give room and run in your 'lane' till you have space to run the normal race line. If your unassisted tap causes someone to spin, you need to redress.

    TRACK LIMITS : As we are running with 'track limit penalties" OFF, we will run with our usual Raceonoz track limit regulations. This means you MUST have at least 2 wheels on the ripple strip OR white line that defines the track limit. If you do make a mistake and have to run outside the limits, be aware that you are not allowed to gain any advantage.
    There are quite a lot of corners with run off and tarmac to be aware of, especially cutting T5 or running off wide at T18.

    CONTACT : Is to be avoided at all times..... If you rear end someone and gain an advantage, YOU ARE EXPECTED to give the spot back. Side by side 'rubbing' is racing, within reason, but all drivers are expected to give racing room.
    If you bump someone and they end up off track or teleport back to the corner entry, you must wait for them to rejoin and get back up to speed.
    Show each other RESPECT! It is difficult enough to drive the car at the limit on your own, without someone squeezing you within a millimeter of the grass.
    So be patient and show respect to your fellow drivers.

    TYRES : Racing Softs and Mediums (must use both compounds separately at least once each)

    PIT ENTRY : Drivers MUST make an attempt to use the pit entry / exit lines.
    PIT EXIT : Please use the pit exit lane and be aware of cars approaching down the straight.
    NOTE: Pitting is COMPULSORY

    BLUE FLAGS : Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS : This season the stewards will be will be @Hatfield @JonoStan96 @Viperzed & @emmo46. If you have reason to protest, please SAVE YOUR REPLAY, and then let us know via a PM.
    DO NOT BLOW UP IN THE FORUM OR IN THE ROOM CHAT. There have been multiple incidents where the replays from drivers have been different, so its true that sometimes things are not as black and white as they may seem. You have until MIDNIGHT, Monday night to register your protest via PM. We will ask for video evidence from both drivers or room captain to make any decision.

    SAVE YOUR REPLAY : If the room host can ask all drivers to save their replay would be good before exiting the room.....once they exit out and the option goes, it cant be retrieved!

    PARTY CHAT : With the new party chat feature able to hold up to 16 participants, each division will have an open party chat for those that wish to use it. We recommend this especially to new drivers as they may ask questions about how the night is run or to clarify anything they are not confident on.

    FINAL NOTE: Could all drivers please confirm their attendance for this Sunday by 'liking' this post in your division. If you are unable to attend, please post in reply as much in your division. This way we can figure out our reserves or if the room can start early in advance.

    Mixed feelings about tonight.

    Qualified last on the mediums and set about on the 1 stopper.
    Had a couple little battles and pitted with 9 to go behind @Viperzed to run softs to the flag.
    Next lap or 2 @apex2691 came out of the pits and that started a long battle with him.
    I made an error at T10 and poked the nose in under brakes by mistake, so slowed to redress before T11 and I don't know if that started what came after :(
    In the end, apex tried to keep the overlap he had following into Eau Rouge, but the side on contact under-steered the car and it ended with my car putting apex in the wall at the top inside of T5.
    That put me third last, but I kept my head down and picked up 2 spots before the end.

    Congrats on the win @MINT_GTR & the championship @KeedenMcdonald
    Good job @FSR_DB007 getting 2nd in the race

    @apex2691 I know you're not happy with me. We need to talk it through in party chat through the week sometime while watching the replay

    Nothing to discuss.
    I drive on the track, you drive off it. That is frustrating.
    Where you can't drive off the track, you were slow.
    You even used incidents as an excuse to cut more ground to make advantage.
    I had outside line into E.R for 2nd time, you crossed over for the 2nd time to far, no unforgivable problem there.
    But the deliberate swerve to put me into the wall was a bit pitiful, and totally unforgivable, and not worth discussing.
    All very very very clear in the replay.

    if not worth discussing with me, then please lodge a protest as obviously one of us needs to learn a lesson because we both think we are in the right.

    Can we all see the replay from multiple view points and then the people. The peer group. Can be the judge for themselves.
    As a side. I firmly believe penalties at spa especially, should have been on.

    I don't mind. I will try to find time tomorrow to get them done.
    All shown once from chase cam on my car, and again from chase cam on apex's car should suffice?

    Also penalties on doesn't fit the lines allowed within the Raceonoz rules of 2 wheels on the ripple strip

    race cam is a bit yucky for determining position. It's great for entertainment though

    Replay is enough for me to have finally learnt my lesson :rolleyes:;)
    If you think your in the right for deliberately putting me into a wall that is very strange indeed. :confused:
    If so, you are right. I am wrong. Leave it at that.
    I have begged several times to run with penalties on at ROOZ.
    You don't like the in game system.
    Seems to throw up the right winner in the FIA races most times, with penalties on.;)

    PS. Congrats to Matt for breaking the Keeden spell.
    Congrats to Keeden on the Championship.
    Thanks for hosting Mr Hatfield.
    Thanks for the battles all year everybody, except the podium, who I never saw after the green light.:alien::alien::alien:

    It’s just to view all angles. Like having an extra angle from apex’s perspective but using your driving view on his car too. Ya dig.
    Oh and as to rooz rules. Some are ambiguous and some are to keep the minority interested.
    But for now let’s just stick to the primary matter of interest. The replays plural.
    This is an open forum.

    This is not the case anymore. "Weak" penalties follow the same rules.

    Never been penalized any track since day dot for two wheels on ripple strip and two wheels on the racetrack. :whistling:

    I got a pretty big couple punts from somebody as well, there was some questionable attempts at passing unfolding in front of me all before that, just slowing us all down. It was only going to end in tears from what I viewed. Could’ve been a lot more smarter driving from my view at the closing stages of the race, I was held up a lot by some silly nose poking ahead of me. Could’ve been 7 or so cars following 5th place by the end if not for all of that.
